Bloggy Friends, Please Tell Me It's Not So Bad!

I have to go in for a tetanus shot. I have a huge scratch on my arm that was full of dirt and it bled and I absolutely have to go. Well, really I should go in, just to be on the safe side. I've been putting it off since Monday, hoping there would be no need for it, but now I've been having weird, random headaches. I'm not a headachey person and I read that it's an early sign of tetanus (you know, when I was trying to get Dr. Google to assure me that I did not need a tetanus shot. He didn't. Bastard!) Realistically, my headaches are probably from being so worried about either having tetanus or getting a shot.

I should get the shot just for the peace of mind. It's been about 15 years since my last one. I'm such a wimp though! Seriously, I may very well pass out on the office floor when they pull out the needle. Sexy Nerd says he'll come in and hold my hand (but only after I insisted that he do! Bastard!) He also is going to take me to McDonalds for an ice cream afterward, which I also insisted on.

Ugh. I'm going to do it. I'm going to go in. I'll put on my brave face and just get it over and done with. Really though, I will be thinking scared thoughts the entire time.

Oh, I am such a WIMP! I know a shot is nothing compared to having tetanus, but I really, really don't want to do it! Yes, I work in a dental office and tell people every day that shots are no big deal, but I'm talking about tiny, easy shots in your mouth. Why can't they do the tetanus shot through my gum? That would be so much easier! At work, we also have a special code that we write on the charts of people like me. DQ. Drama Queen. I don't want to be a DQ, but it's just so darn scary!

Okay, I'm going to go. Maybe I'll wait one more day and see if the headaches go away. Oh, I really, really don't want a tetanus shot! No, no, no, no, no!!!

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

Dream Home Dreaming

We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design. See below for details.

Original post from 2013:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?


The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:
